Many chronic health conditions can be caused by the accumulation of heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum, or cadmium in the body. Certain cardiovascular diseases, neurological diseases, and immune system disorders have been linked to heavy metals toxicity. Heavy metals typically accumulate in fatty tissue, organ tissue, and nervous system tissue and disrupt the body’s natural enzymes and displace minerals like magnesium.
Accurately testing for these heavy metals is the only way to determine if heavy metal accumulation is causing or contributing to your health concerns. Heavy metal testing is done through urine samples that are evaluated at an independent lab. The heavy metal test evaluates the tissue levels of about 15 different types of metals that could accumulate in the body.
